Rhea Ripley has undeniably had a stellar year in the world of WWE, and as 2023 draws to a close, she’s not just closing the chapter but adding another golden page to her career’s success story.

This year has seen Ripley shine brighter than ever, firmly establishing herself as one of WWE’s top talents, and her association with the powerhouse faction, Judgment Day, only added to her star power.

Throughout 2023, Ripley’s trajectory soared as she made her presence felt across both Raw and SmackDown, earning her place as one of the company’s marquee attractions. The turning point came when she joined forces with Judgment Day, an alliance that initially featured Edge and Damian Priest. However, the group dynamics shifted as Finn Balor took charge, kicking Edge out and introducing Dominik Mysterio.

In a momentous achievement, Ripley triumphed in this year’s women’s Royal Rumble Match back in January, earning the coveted right to challenge for a championship of her choosing at WrestleMania 39. The grand stage witnessed Ripley’s crowning glory as she defeated Charlotte Flair to capture the SmackDown Women’s Title on the event’s first night. WWE subsequently rebranded the championships, and Ripley now proudly holds the Women’s World Title.

As the Women’s World Champion, Ripley has proven her mettle by successfully defending her title against formidable challengers such as Natalya and Zelina Vega. Her most recent title defense at the prestigious Survivor Series event showcased her tenacity, as she bested Zoey Stark in a thrilling encounter.

The stats speak volumes of Ripley’s dominance – she has held the Women’s World Title for a staggering 250 days and counting. In a testament to her fighting spirit, she has stepped into the ring to defend her title an astounding 32 times, spanning television broadcasts, live events, and premium live extravaganzas.

Rhea Ripley’s 2023 has been nothing short of spectacular, and her journey as the Women’s World Champion continues to captivate the WWE Universe. As the year draws to a close, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this incredible talent.
